Akiba Eger ? Strictly Kosher, Strictly Quality

Saturday, September 22nd, 2001

Shredding the old perception that kosher wines are sweet and inferior to mainstream wines, A.V. Imports introduces Akiba Eger ? an exception brand of wine that is ideal for the ''Holiday of Freedom'' and other special occasions.

Kosher for Passover and perfect for family feasts, celebrations and parties, Akiba Eger is available in a Cabernet Franc or Welsch Riesling ? ideal for pairing with traditional and nouvelle cuisine. Akiba Eger listened to the market and developed wines that defy the status quo. These sophisticated wines produced in Egervin, the second largest winery in Hungary, are a far cry from the sweet wines in square bottles to which many may be accustomed.

The Akiba Eger Cabernet Franc, from the Kunsag region of Hungary, is a fresh and fruity wine with a medium body and measured tannins. Aged in oak, it is produced from 100 percent Cabernet Franc grapes, a close relative of Cabernet Sauvignon and shares many of the same characteristics. Produced from 100 percent Welsch Riesling grapes from the Eger region, the Akiba Eger Welsch Riesling has a medium golden hue with exotic aromas of flint and honeyed apples.

Egervin, which was founded in 1949, has greatly expanded its range of grape varieties that can be used in the production of kosher wines. As one of the most significant wine producers in Hungary, the company uses premium grapes and viticultural techniques, to ensure Akiba Eger wines meet high quality standards. Every step of the wine making process from grape crushing to bottling of the wines is handled solely by Sabbath observant Jews using equipment that is used exclusively for the preparation of kosher products.

Akiba Eger wines are ideal for vegetarians as kosher wines are subject to a very stringent filtration procedure, and no foreign substance may be used (unlike non-kosher wines, which often use gelatin, rice, milk products or animal products for clarification and purification processes).

A.V. Imports, Inc., a Columbia, Maryland-based national wine and spirit importer, has been in business since 1986. The company imports wines and spirits from Italy, Mexico, Chile, Hungary, Spain and New Zealand and distributes them throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, Aruba and Bahamas.

Akiba Eger's Welsh Riesling and New Cabernet Franc are Kosher for Passover.
